PART FOUR OF PLANET OF THE APES COVER GALLERY...
Are you ready for more PLANET Of The APES covers?
Good, because here are another 11 to titillate your tastebuds (meta-
phorically speaking) and whisk you back to the 1970s faster than you
can blink. Next time around, there'll be a dozen covers to complete
the first year of MARVEL's premier primate periodical.
To this day, I haven't seen an episode of the TV series, 'though I
long ago saw all the movies. In fact, I've got a DVD boxed set that I
really should sit down and watch again some time. I'm sure you already
know this, but Dr. ZAIUS was originally going to be played by famous
thespian EDWARD G. ROBINSON (test footage exists), and I've always
suspected that MAURICE EVANS, who stepped up to the plate when
Robinson stepped down, was made up to resemble his predecessor.
Was that because Robinson had a face that lent itself to the ape
make-up? Possibly, but who knows for sure?
Anyway, enjoy the covers on offer, and be sure to come
back for more. I do it all for you, faithful ones. 'Nuff said.
